Introduction to Physical Activity and Exercise as a Low-Intensity Intervention (Presentation) – £15 + VAT


Category: Tag:

Since the recent changes in the PWP training curriculum, Physical Activity (PA) now plays a central role in the interventions that PWPs should be offering their clients. This training addresses:

  • How to consider whether your client could benefit from, and wants to work on, increasing PA or exercise, or both?
  • How to create a strong rationale linked to their conceptualisation.
  • How to establish a baseline and collaboratively negotiate gradual increases (considering the 10% rule).
  • How to explore barriers and facilitators to increasing PA &/or exercise in depth.
  • The use of COM-B and problem solving approaches to address the use of PA
  • How to review progress in detail and link this to the conceptualisation
